Ya’ll may remember my last TILT with my “as seen on tv” purchase.
This week I have another “as seen on tv” purchase that I just have to share with you.
Are you ready?
Spiky blue balls. Yep.
They make a lot of claims about drying time, softness, fluffiness and saving energy. I have not done any “tests” of my own to say that these claims are true, but let me tell you what I have noticed with these bad boys.
When I put a load of wet clothes in with them to dry, they do come out fluffier! That was just cool.
My favorite thing is what they do for clothes off the line. I much prefer to hang my clothes outside for them to dry. The money savings is awesome, but the clothes are not always very soft or fluffy. I don’t like taking the time to hang them out to dry just to bring them back inside and heat them in the dryer to fluff them. Not productive, efficient or frugal. The dryer balls were a great answer to this problem. Now when a load has dried outside I put them in the dryer with the balls and no heat for less than 10 minutes. The clothes come out soft and fluffy without the added expense of heating them to achieve the wanted fluffiness and softness.
Yes, I have tried to fluff the clothes with no heat without the balls. It is just nowhere as effective. The balls really do make a difference.
I like that they have no chemicals in them. That is why we cut out dryer sheets a long time ago. I do not want my family absorbing those chemicals into their skin.
My clothes do not come in off the line very stiff like they used to. That comes from soap residue that is left behind. Using vinegar in your rinse cycle, instead of fabric softener works beautifully and leaves no scent. The dryer balls help with the usual line drying stiffness, and helps to fluff up fabrics- like towels.
I am loving my dryer balls, and they only cost me 10 bucks!
